Health Highlights:
Most holiday meals leave us feeling sluggish and maybe a little guilty, but there is a silver lining to this tasty Thanksgiving treat. Check out some of the health benefits that this casserole contains:

Sweet Potatoes: Though they are “sweet,” these vegetables still offer plenty of nutrients. Due to a low glycemic index, sweet potatoes can be helpful in maintaining energy and controlling blood sugar, which is helpful for everyone, especially those with diabetes.[1]
 
Orange: The fiber, potassium, and vitamin C in oranges help support heart health. Increasing potassium intake can help reduce the risk of heart disease.[2]
 
Nutmeg: Nutmeg can act as a sedative, and helps with inflammation, muscle pain, arthritis, and more.[3]
 

Ingredients: 
4 cooked sweet potatoes, peeled
3/4 cup canned coconut milk
1 tablespoon coconut oil
1/4 cup pure maple syrup
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 orange, juiced
Salt and pepper to taste
4 drops Cinnamon essential oil
 
Pecan topping:
1 1/2 cups chopped pecans
1 tablespoon melted coconut oil
1 tablespoon maple syrup
2 drops Cinnamon essential oil
 

Directions: 
  1. Place cooked sweet potatoes, coconut milk, coconut oil, maple syrup, nutmeg, orange juice, and Cinnamon essential oil into a large bowl.
  2. With a hand mixer, blend until everything is combined. If desired, you can add more maple syrup or essential oil.
  3. Spread into an oven-safe dish and set aside.
  4. Combine all topping ingredients until pecans are well coated. Sprinkle on top of sweet potatoes.
  5. Bake in oven at 350 degrees for 50-60 minutes, or until pecans have slightly browned. Serve warm.
 
Tip: For additional deliciousness, drizzle maple syrup on top.
